3:08pm
over abortion. pro-life advocates have tange their fight to the state level where the legislators across the country enacted numerous laws aimed to rolling back roe, sparking battles over required ultra sounds and regulation for abortion clinics. because of the number of the pro-life state measures passed in 2012, pro-choice groups for reproductive rights, crr said last year was assault on women reproductive rights. one thing the two sides agree on the fight is not over. >> there is rising tide across the country of pro-life legislators for bigging up the flag and advancing the defensive life and law. >> relentless attack on the street services. i expect that to continue on the state level. >> happy anniversary, baby. >> crr is taking heat over an ad meant to mark 4th anniversary of the rode six entitled "happy anniversary, baby." they say the use of the word
3:09pm

>> bret: after a probe of racy e-mail exchanges, with socialites, the same woman who was caught up in scandal between david petraeus and the other woman cost him the job as c.i.a. director. the messages from general john allen and jill kelley were
3:14pm
discovered in the f.b.i. investigation of petraeus last year. it's been more than four months since the deadly terror attack on the u.s. diplomatic facilities in benghazi, libya. tomorrow, america's top diplomats will finally answer questions about what happened or should we ask them. one of them. where are the dozens of survivors of that attack? why haven't we heard from them? national security correspondent jennifer griffin reports tonight from the state department. >> ambassador steven's body was missing for nearly 11 hours. u.s. military assets in europe were alerted but never utilized. yet, the state department accountability review board chaired by admiral mike mullen and thomas pickerring concluded last month, "there simply was not enough time for armed u.s. military assets to have made a difference." that is not what congressman jason chaffetz was told by general carter hamm when they traveled to libya after the attack. >> he told me he had proximity
3:15pm
and capability but he was not told to go fight for those people and save the people when the firefight was going on. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton will face questions on capitol hill wednesday for the first time about what happened in benghazi on september 11. >> there was no question at any point in the statements that she considered it her responsibility to learn the lessons from this and to take the department forward in implementing whatever lessons were learned. >> yet, at least two eyewitnesses who participated in the rescue that night in benghazi were not offered up by their senior leaders at the c.i.a. and the state department to speak to mullen and pickerring. in marked contrast to how the civilian survivors of the algeria attack have been made available to the press, the administration has not made any of the benghazi survivors available to congressable members who want to know what happened. >> state department employees who were injured in the
3:16pm
firefight should be interviewed and talked to by members of congress. so far that hasn't happened. >> there are many unanswered questions from benghazi. for one, fox news learned from the senior u.s. defense officials that the fast team of marines out of spain were asked by the state department officials to change out of their marine uniforms. before heading in to libya to help. this required them to deplane and delayed them by 90 minutes according to pentagon officials. then there is the decision by secretary of state clinton and state department under-secretary of management patrick kennedy who was in the operation center that night. not to send a foreign emergency support team, which the state department own web site describes as the government only interagency on-call short notice team poised to respond to terrorists ips dents. as a result, the f.b.i. could not enter the complex for 24 days after which point most evidence was gone. secretary clinton will be
3:17pm
asked why more security wasn't provided at the benghazi mission after the june 6 bombing and why ambassador chris stevens left behind some of his security detail in tripoli. why the reck secrecy? >> bret: we'll cover it tomorrow. thank you. the pentagon says the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa is at the top of the list for suspects for algerian terrorist attack. three americans were killed. seven others escaped. the overall death toll there believed to be around 80. the task of identifying some of the bodies continues. algerian government official says authorities are still looking for five missing foreign workers. the u.s. african commander saying american planes begun transporting french troops and equipment in support of their mission in mali. the c-17 flights began monday and will operate in the next several days. what to do with another kind of air power is really the question being considered at the highest levels of power here in the u.s.
3:18pm
tonight, chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge takes a look at where the u.s. drone program is going. >> during his inaugural address, president obama promised to uphold the rule of law and he emphasized that america's longest war was coming to an end. >> we, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. >> but critics including the american civil libertys union say the public promises conflict with his private manual that attempts to set clear standard for use of drones in targeted killing missions. >> here you have a secret play book, a secret set of rules on how the president himself is going to make decisions on who the kill and who lives and who dies, including united states citizens. then you have, then you have a complete exception for the c.i.a.'s use of drones in pakistan. so, how is that not endless war and how is that compliance
3:19pm
with the rule of law? >> today at the white house briefing spokesman jay carney was pushed to explain the apparent contradiction. >> we need to do everything we can to keep americans an america safe as well as our allies. we need to do it in ways consistent with the values and our laws. >> we have been briefed on drones. we have been briefed when the drones have been used. but there is no real strategy there. there are no guidelines there. >> the new chairman of the house homeland security committee mike mccall says the video stills are more evidence that al-qaeda in north africa is in possession of weapons from lib yeah. earlier u.s. intelligence officials say they were working to verify weapons were used in the algerian crisis program. he exexpects the drone crisis to expand. >> wind down with the technology and the special forces that we have. similar drones, should be redirected to this front. >> neither the c.i.a. nor a spokesman for the national security council provided
3:20pm
immediate comment on the administration counterterrorism manual. >> very basic concept of the rule of law is people know what the rules are. having a secret play book means you are not compliant with the rule of law. there is no rule of law. people don't know what the rules are. >> today, the director of national intelligence urged the white house to give the pentagon the lion's share of control for the drone program and minimize the c.i.a. involvement. >> bret: you can imagine secretary clinton will be asked about the expansion in northern africa tomorrow. >> certainly. >> bret: thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bret: russia has begun evacuating the citizens from war-torn syria. four buses carrying about 80 people mostly women and children crossed to lebanon earlier in afternoon. the latest indication of russia perceives syria's president is losing his grip on power there. still ahead -- a big election in israel and what is at stake. first, is the housing crisis finally over here in the u.s.? we will look at what the numbers say. ford c-max hybrid. when you're carrying a lot of weight,

3:34pm
apart over the domestic pressure on budget, a and military service for israeli ultra religious and possibility of a strike. on the nuclear facilities. he joined the party with the nationalist leader leeberman to quarter more 40 of the needed 61 knesset seats to form a government. but it doesn't materialize when netanyahu was battered from the left and the right. former chief of staff came on strong. bennettbe is the darling of the settleers who live on the land in west bank that palestinians want for the future state. his inclusion in netanyahu government would virtually assure the continued deadlock in talks. the left winging movement of the future partner promised to push him hard for deal with palestinians and end to the handout for religiouss.

support democracy from asia, to africa, to middle east. the interest and conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. >> bret: president obama in in inaugust, the inaugural address talk about the foreign policy, spent the address talking about domestic policy on the left and the right. as a liberal , progressive speech. the foreign policy in the administration has been aggressive and continuing the bush administration policy of going after terrorists. the drone policy for example. bring in the panel on the way forward. jona goldberg. a.b. stoddard, associate editor of tannehill. indicateed columnist charles
3:40pm
krauthammer. one thing overlooked by folks what a phrase that some picked up on, but not many. peace in our time. >> the whole foreign policy section such that it was, which could fit on a thimble for the most part you have to read body language rather than the language because it's sparse. one phrase, peace in your time. the summation. after being rolled by hitler, i brought us peace in our time. to use that phrase is historically tone deaf or ignorant, they didn't know what the ail yens of it was. they didn't know what it meant is vastly more troubling. context of dealing with iran a israel and stop iran getting the nuclear weapon, the idea of setting it out there to get
3:41pm
peace in our time has got, tom ricks foreign policy said they were doing it to rattle benjamin netanyahu. it's so ignorant or so irresponse to believe use the phrase. it's synonymous with approach to foreign policy that leads aggression across borders. >> bret: do you think it was the message or a mistake? >> i bet a mistake. the guys in the white house have a wikipedia staff when it comes to speech writing stop. they make weird errors. that previous speech writing shops would never make. obama didn't have the excuse. he has to read it and know what the phrase meant. >> we have a shot of neville chamberlain if anybody wanted to see a face with a name. >> what do you think? >> the speech was short on foreign policy intentionally. the focus of domestic policy. when he got to it, it was
3:42pm
clear that he wanted to emphasize engagement again. he did not want to talk about stopping nuclear iran. he did not want to talk, he talked about permanent wars as if it was an indulgence. interesting that he de-emphasized foreign policy. confirmation hearings to be the director of the c.i.a. he not only will be asked about what the current, and the policy has been but what it will be in the future. if the drone policy is
3:43pm
unsustainable what is the drone policy going to be? what will they be replaced with when we leave afghanistan? how do we fight al-qaeda if we pull back from drone six? there are questions what about we have been doing, which is secretive and replace it with. >> bret: some, charles, say the drone program is largely a program not about being aggressive after terrorists. >> it seems to me the choice of the zone policy, the content of the global warming, though he won't use the word,
3:44pm
a way to keep the problem at bay. it does something, kills the leadership. slows them down. not capturing anybody or gathering intelligence as done for the decade before. a reasonable way to approach the problem if the way obama thinks. he wants to keep the world at bay. the size of the speech of the foreign affairs was negligible. there is nothing in it except for the error "peace in our time" which i assume is sheer ignorance, because otherwise it's perverse. the phrase you show him saying we'll defend those who are fighting on behalf of democracy because it's in interest and conscience, what
3:45pm
about syria? mali? in mali, the administration can't decide to enforce the french out there. drone intelligence. he needs to reform america. he said this. we have want to rebuild the nation in home. we don't want to go abroad. retreat is idea and policy of reseeding. with the nomination of john kerry and chuck hagel is president obama sending a chamberlain message? >> i think charles is right. he is sending the message. these are care-takers and people who will keep the foreign policy off his desk.
3:46pm
some people say is part of the foreign policy part. climate change, and we know kerry will be deeply invested in. that has a real policy and dollars and cents. the rest is tabulum. the cabinet pointments are people to allow him to focus on this domesticbe transformation. >> bret: a leap forward for tomorrow. secretary clinton testifying on benghazi. she will testify in the morning on the senate side and afternoonbe in the house. this should be high drama when it comes to congress. asking and answering. the republicans are forecasting that.
3:47pm
>> i don't know that they will be surprises in a lot of new revelations from the testimony. >> bret: charles? >> i think they will ask what did you know and when did you know it? where were you during the attackbe? what did the president say? who were the embassy personnel who were flown out and not hurt and know and can say what happened and have not been named by the state department and why aren't they allowed to speak to the american people and the congress? >> bret: almost no one in the press. >> of course. >> because i exclude as standing above the press. >> bret: jonah?
3:48pm

legislation in to law. >> bret: that raised eyebrows. 40th anniversary of the roe v. wade. 40 years ago. pro-life groups are out with ads as well. this is a website and it details the number of abortions since 1973. that number is at the bottom of the page. 54,559. i'm sorry, 54,559,615, i should say. we're back with the panel. this is obviously leading up to a big, big fight. there have been statewide efforts, charles. this administration is committed to pro-choice. where do you see this standing right now? >> what is interesting, unlike the other social issues, like legalization of drugs. gay rights. abortion is one where the

pro-abortion side, liberal side is not the way of the future. what is interesting if you look at the opinions of the younger generation, they are pro-life. than others in the other age range which is surprising and different from the other social issues. i think it is one that will remain in contention for generations. the lesson here for the gay right legislation of the court is going to look at, do not repeat roe. roe was happened at a time the rapid social change, ronald reagan signed the most liberal abortion law in the country. this put a stop at all of this. this decreed liberal success before it was in the culture. it creates all the social tension. let the people work it out in the states. in referenda. but not to do it by decree on

long time coming. whatever side you come down on it that is not the way the government should run. >> bret: much more to talk about this ahead. but stay tuned for a case of mistaken identity.
